War in Iraq

The United States is obviously a polarized nation when it comes to the issue of whether or not we should be fighting a war in Iraq. From a biblical perspective, one can argue that liberating people from a murderous dictatorship is the right thing to do, or one could argue that to send people to die in a 'pre-emptive' war is the wrong thing to do. As Christians however, all analysis must be based on how best can Christ be glorified in the current situation? The Bible teaches that all Governments are established by God. As such, regardless of your position on the war, it was ordered by our Government. Our responsibility as Christians is to pray for our leaders. Here's a thought: if you agree with the war, pray for wisdom for our leaders to prosecute the war wisely. If you disagree with the war, pray for wisdom for our leaders to prosecute the war wisely. What a novel idea! As Christians, we can pray in agreement!
